About This Scholarship

The Carolyn Wones Recruitment Grant was created to support the professional and personal development of female educators as well as academic excellence by offering tools for women. The scholarship funds at CFNIL were established by benefactors who saw the value of aiding students in achieving their educational objectives both now and in the future. The criteria were chosen by those who created the funds based on their personal preferences and community needs. Many of the scholarships offered by CFNIL are tributes that honour the lives and passions of particular people. Volunteer committees assess and evaluate the applications in a “blind” review procedure before presenting their findings and recommendations to the board of trustees of CFNIL. Late April sees the announcement of scholarship winners. Awards are delivered right to the post-secondary institution of the laureate.
